Try connecting to the internet via a ethernet/lan cable and go to the manufacturers website to download the neccessary driver for it or if possible use a different pc to download the driver for your laptop from manufacturer website to a cd or flashdrive.Then install it it to your laptop.
What version of windows? Anyway, right mouse click on Ethernet Controller, and select update driver, then select let windows install for me, then let it find the driver...if that doesn't work, you need the driver disk, or download the correct driver for your OS> thanks Adam
You must reinstall the wireless adapter's driver from the HP website. You can do this by one of two ways:
1. Connect the Ethernet cable (assuming your network adapter is functional and the driver is installed) to the Internet via the modem. Then log into the HP website - drivers and download section for your model. Download the driver to your computer and install it.
2. On another computer that can connect to the Internet, insert a USB flash drive into a USB port. Log in to the HP website as above and download the driver file into the flash drive. Transfer the file just downloaded to the laptop and install it.
Whenever the operating system (in some cases) is reinstalled, some drivers need to be installed separately from the operating system.
I'm sure those devices listed have a yellow exclamation mark beside them. This is an indication that you need to install their drivers.
The drivers for those devices are not installed and they need to be installed for them to be able to perform their functions.
This is the main reason why your computer is not connecting to the internet. If you try to use internet via cable, it won't work because the Ethernet controller is not installed and Network controller is in charge of wireless.
So install the drivers for these devices and every thing is going to be alright.
Install drivers for ethernet card or buy a usb to ethernet adapter. That will get you on the net so you can install your other drivers via thinkvantage installer. Or you can just cruise the net with the usb to ethernet adapter itself.
check the driver of your network controller, go to device manager, to access this, right click my computer then click device manager tab then find network controller then click + sign preceeding of that. if you notice that there is yellow question mark of the network, you need to install driver so that you cant connect to internet
1. if you have wireless, purchase or borrow an add on usb wireless stick. this will allow you to access the internet and add in your missing drivers.
2. or add in a pci card that has ethernet connection to get your drivers.
3. use someone elses computer and download the drivers from the IBM site, put them on a usb stick and then apply them to your unit, (ie more the ethernet driver as a primary and then you can download the remaining ones as you go after it is working. hope this helps.
well first i can suggest trying to reinstall the drivers for the ethernet controller and the wireless card you are using. if that does not solve the problem, then are you subscribed to internet through cable, which is what your router connects to?
